Making Snowfall Forecasts More Accuarate

Posted by Dan Satterfield

IMG_9147-169x300We are at the cusp of some amazing technology that will hopefully make forecasting snowstorms, like the one predicted yesterday, much more accurate. I was on a local program produced by the TV station I work for (WBOC-TV) last week, and I showed a couple of smart phone apps that may eventually make a real difference in forecasting. Making better forecasts requires higher resolution models and that means more data to input into them. The future looks promising!
